After previously ranking all of the champions in the Mid Lane tier list, folks here at eXputer have now diverted our attention to ranking the Best Junglers in the current meta. So, strap on because we’re going for a joyride through the best and worst of the dangerous Jungle in this Jungle Tier List.
The term “Jungler” refers to a role in League of Legends, “Summoner’s Rift” game mode. Unlike Top laner, Mid laner, etc. The role Jungler does not have a lane reserved for it. Instead, they exist in the space between the top, middle, and bottom lanes. They farm jungle monsters, get vision and objectives, but most importantly, gank their teammate’s lanes to help them win. It is arguably the hardest role in League.
|Jungle Tier List Characters Ranking Table|
|S-Tier||Kayn, Bel’Veth, Diana, Fiddlesticks, Master Yi|
|A-Tier||Trundle, Rengar, Volibear, Elise, Rammus|
|B-Tier||Gragas, Olaf, Nunu And Willump, Shyvana, Amumu|
|C-Tier||Ivern, Udyr, Mordekaiser, Wukong, Skarner|
|D-Tier||Lee Sin, Hecarim, Karthus, Viego, Graves|
The champions here in the S Tier of our jungle tier list are the ultimate junglers of the current meta. Moreover, due to some buffs to them or to the items they use, or many other possible reasons. They are currently the best at what they do. They have one of the highest win rates in the whole game. If you want to climb while jungling, these are the champions to consider using.
Master Yi is an auto-attack-based champion. All of his damage comes from the hundreds of fast-paced true damage autos he can quickly deliver. We might go as far as to say that he has always been one of the best auto-heavy junglers. Therefore, seeing how auto-attack champions have been on the strong side recently. It should not be a surprise to anyone that Master Yi is in the S-Tier.
Master Yi is among the most beginner-friendly and easy-to-play champions. However, despite being so simple, he does have a high skill cap. And experienced players can do wonders with him using only the auto-attack-heavy kit that is seemingly bland. Moreover, the timely usage of his Q to dodge cc among other things can turn the tide of battle.
Additionally, Master Yi’s W provides damage reduction, self-healing, and a reset to his auto-attack passive. This skill takes time to get used to. Furthermore, Mater Yi is one of the best champions to learn jungling on as his kit teaches you a lot of things. He is a mechanically easy champion giving you time to learn and focus on the objectives, team, and map.
- Master Yi’s Q: Teaches you the importance of timely usage of abilities. Saving your Q for just the right moment is the key difference between a good Master Yi and a bad one.
- Master Yi’s W: First-hand experience on damage reduction and auto-attack resets. Also shows that patience is key and waiting for your abilities to come back up is always necessary.
- Master Yi’s E: Shows the difference between how passive and active abilities.
- Master Yi’s R: Provides buffs to many stats including movement speed and attack speed.
- Recent buffs have provided him with the ability to apply On-hit effects when using his Q. This was not previously the case. Additionally, this buff has had quite an impact on his performance as he has tons of On-hit effects.
- Once Master Yi gets ahead, there is absolutely no stopping him. He can obliterate entire enemy teams in seconds and easily carry games.
- The main weakness for Yi is cc but as his Ultimate makes him immune to slows, only hard cc needs to be dealt with. Giving you a lot less to think about.
- Teamfighting with Master Yi can be a golden opportunity if you wait for everyone to have used their cc. Once enemies are low and vulnerable, Yi is the best champion to clean up and stack Penta kills after Penta kills.
- He is extremely weak in the early game.
- Master Yi is extremely reliant on his usage of items.
- Hard to come back if they have cc, and you are left behind.
- Yi has many hard counters like Rammus and Amumu.
Fiddlesticks is a ranged mage jungler with excellent jungling abilities and team fight potential. Moreover, he received a complete rework some while ago and got updated according to the current league meta. The rework kept his core features while also updating everything and it was generally well-received by players.

Additionally, it deals even more damage for every extra person hit by her R. Diana is an extremely strong champion in the current meta earning her a spot in the S-Tier.
- Great at picking people when they are out of position or alone.
- Insane burst damage. Additionally, no one can escape her with the gap closer Q E combo getting a reset on E and being able to perform a double dash.

- She is very squishy because all she builds is complete ability power.
- Can be countered easily.
Bel’Veth is one of the most recently released champions. She is a very auto-heavy champion with her attack speed scaling infinitely. Moreover, she has so many dashes with her 4 Qs and Ultimate resets. Bel’Veth can do true damage so she is good against tanks as well.
Overall she is just a blast to play with. Additionally, like all attack speed/on-hit champions, she is top-tier in the current meta.

- Once she gets behind it is very hard to come back.

- Bel’Veth is very weak against cc. Therefore, try to go in after all enemy ccs have been used in the team fight.
Kayn is one of THE most junglers in the game. In addition to that, he is also one of the strongest. He has always had excellent clear. And with the ability to change forms, no game ever feels boring. Because you always have a different experience when playing him.
Kayn can go into Rhaast form and become an absolute 1v9 monster. Or he can become a nightmare for squishes through Shadow Assassin form.

- Kayn has a high-skill cap. Consequently, it can take a lot of time to get down the form mechanics and understand when to pick and how to play both forms.
- Kayn is very weak before he gets one of the two forms. Therefore, you should avoid any battles if possible when in basic form
- Shadow Assasin falls off as the game goes on his burst potential becomes not much of a threat if they get to the same level as you.
- Rhaast is easily kiteable.
Give our TFT Tier List a try.
The A Tier of our jungle tier list consists of those champions that are extremely good but not quite at the top. Moreover, some of these champions are here because they are counters to those in S Tier. And some are here for the same reasons as those in S Tier.
Whatever the case, these junglers are extremely good and viable in the current meta and should be considered when looking to climb or even just enjoy the game.

Moreover, All of the champions in League are here in Summoner’s Rift for one reason or another, whether it be gold, fame or even to find their loved ones.
The map consists of 3 different lanes: Top, Mid, and Bot. Additionally, in between each lane, there is a collection of different jungle monsters, bushes, and twisted pathways known as the Jungle. Each of these lanes has its champions specific to its roles. One Toplaner, one Midlaner, two Players in Bot (ADC and Support), and one Jungler.
The objective of Summoner’s Rift is quite simple. Both the teams consisting of 5 players, working together as explained in the above-described roles, fight each other to gain the upper hand. All to destroy the enemy teams Nexus.
Furthermore, Summoner’s rift consists of jungle monsters, buffs, structures (Turrets, Inhibitors), and epic monsters such as the Baron Nashor and Dragon. All of these are essential to take control of in order to win the game.
The reason for all of this information and in-depth explanation is that Summoner’s Rift is the most important game mode. The major matches, such as ranked and pro-play, are all done on this map. Consequently, it is the most popular map of all, and almost every tier list and ranking is specifically made for this map.
Similarly, this tier list ranking all the Jungle Champions is also focused only on their tiers in the Summoner’s Rift game mode. Another tier list you might be interested in is Raid Shadow Legends Tier List.
As previously stated, the Jungle is a large collection of all kinds of Jungle Monsters, Bushes and Plants, River, and Epic Monsters.
This is the life source of a Jungler, every jungler must kill and farm these monsters to get stronger and continue the game. Some junglers can easily kill these and for some, it proves to be a challenge. The jungle consists of many different camps on both sides of the map including:
- Raptors: A set of one big and seven small vicious chicken creatures.
- Krugs: One big and one small boulder, they break into smaller boulders when they die.
- Red Buff: A strong moss monster, that gives the player a buff once killed.
- Wolves: Three wolves, one big and two small ones.
- Gromp: A big toad that does ranged attacks.
- Blue Buff: A giant monster made of stone, gives the player a buff when killed.
- Scuttle Crap: A harmless monster in the river, it gives vision and healing when killed.
Bushes And Plants
The twisted pathways of the jungle are filled with large and small bushes that spread everywhere. Moreover, the placements of bushes are different in all 4 corners of the map. Additionally, the jungle and river have three kinds of Plants: Blast Cones, Vision Plants, and Honey Fruits.
There is a large river spanning the whole map, separating the two sides of the jungle. It goes all the way from Bot lane to Top lane, with a gap in the middle for Mid lane. Moreover, all three of the epic monsters spawn in the Jungle. Furthermore, many of the team fights happen here due to objective control.
There are four Epic Monsters: Dragon, Elder Dragon, Rift Herald, and Baron Nashor.
- Dragon: Weakest of all the jungle monsters. There are 7 types of dragons that spawn randomly through rng. All of them provide different permanent buffs to the whole team when slain.
- Elder Dragon: Once all the dragons are slain, The Elder Dragon spawns, when he is slain as well, one of the strongest buffs in the entire game is awarded to the whole team.
- Rift Herald: Can easily be killed and then used to destroy enemy structures.
- Baron Nashor: The strongest and most important buff of all. He can buff your team and your minions. Killing the Baron and getting his buff makes destroying the enemy base much, much easier.
